Councillor Claims Hotel Rosslare To Be Used As Mandatory Quarantine Centre

A Wexford councillor has highlighted that Hotel Rosslare may be used as a quarantine centre in Wexford..

Since January 16, it has become a legal requirement for travellers entering the country to provide a negative Covid PCR test, taken a maximum of 72 hours before undertaking their outgoing journey. 

It appears that Hotel Rosslare may be used as a mandatory quarantine centre in the near future, should mandatory quarantine be fully legislated by Government.

While the location does makes sense, one would have to question if the hotel is in the appropriate state to host such people quarantining for fourteen days. Despite this, the hotel itself has recently been used as a Direct Provision centre, and overall, it is certainly a positive to see developments on the quarantine front.

The mandatory quarantine requirement would ensure safety, while it would deter others travelling to Ireland, similar to how Irish people have been deterred from travelling abroad to other countries on holidays.

“The TDs may have failed to inform the residents of Rosslare Harbour, but I won’t. The Government are due to designate Hotel Rosslare as a Covid mandatory quarantine centre. The usual smoke and mirrors from national level,” the Wexford Councillor Ger Carthy stated.

Only time will tell if this Government plan comes to fruition.

In some other positive Covid-19 news, a vaccination centre has been agreed for the Enniscorthy area.
